650 Crank re-grind / refurb

Hi,
This question has probably been asked before but I couldn't find it.
I am rebuilding a 1965 650 twin and measuring the crank one of the big end journals is down to 1.6225 dia which is 0.001 below the minimum in the book (1.624/1.6235). So does anyone know if this is OK or is it time for a grind.
Because I'm replacing everything else I'll probably go for it anyways.
So next question - any recommendations for a shop to do the re-grind, I live in the Seattle area but I'm willing to mail it anywhere (USA only)
Thanks for your input.

Steve at European Motorcycles does a good job on Triumph crank machining. i think it's about $150 to do both journals. give him a call, he's a good dude, been doing Triumphs for 30 or so years.
